Pretty in Pink

Posted: November 24, 2008 in Freebie

Wow, I just noticed that I’ve haven’t posted for a long time. Our family has been really busy with soccer.

I have a new mini kit for the DSO color challenge. It’s called Pretty in Pink. Coming up with names for these kits is the hardest part of doing the kits. Anyway, hope that you like it.

Pretty In Pink



Posted: September 16, 2008 in Freebie

It’s been a while since I’ve wrote anything. My excuse is that I’ve had a lot of headaches lately.

Our family has been really busy. Soccer season is starting. This year Ric is coaching Aidrin’s team and is the assistant coach for Camryn’s team. Lauren decided that after two broken arms during last season, she would sit this season out. We had our first games last Saturday. Aidrin’s team – The Hedgehogs did awesome. Camryn’s team – The Gators didn’t do too badly either. The other team won, scoring a goal during the last few minutes of the game.

I have a freebie today. I know that’s it’s been a long time, but better late than never?
Hope that you like it.

All Star & A Freebie

Posted: August 15, 2008 in Freebie, Kits, Uncategorized

I’m so excited to tell you that I have teamed up with Kami of Ziggle Designs and we came up with an amazing kit! All Star is a little sporty, but not too sporty. You can use it for anything. Hope that you like it. Leave a comment and tell me what you think.
Right now at Scrap Orchard there is a special – Buy 2 or more perfect pear collaboration kits and save 40%. How awesome is that. The other seedlings have teamed up with Shauna, Amy, and Ellie of Scrap Orchard and there are some fantastic Kits available today! So check out the Perfect Pears. (pictures link to store)

Here is a layout that I did of my pouty little girl. She did not want me to take her picture. She was too busy playing soccer. I just had to have photo. She looked so cute in her over sized soccer uniform.

With everything that has been going on lately, I have not been able to do any freebies. So yay! A new freebie today.
The freebie coordinates with my new kit All Star. I’m hoping that I can do a few more freebies in the next few days. Enjoy!


IM Meet

Posted: July 8, 2008 in Freebie

Yay! Camryn took 2nd place in her IM Meet last night. Usually she only has to swim 25 yards. Last night she swam the 100 yard IM. They swim butterfly, backstroke, breast stroke, and then freestyle. For this meet they only took the 4 fastest swimmers from each age group. It was really fun. Congrats Cam!!!

I am not one to complain about the weather being hot. I only complain when it’s cold, but yesterday, the pool bleachers were right in line with the sun. No shade around. Usually in Arizona, if you can find some shade, you are good to go.
So last night I sat waiting for Camryn and my clothes were sopping wet. It looked like it was trying to storm, so it was a little on the humid side. So I’m going to admit that it was really hot yesterday. There I said it.

I made a layout! Yay me. It’s about time. I’m getting really far behind. I used my collaboration kit Boys of Summer. I also used a template by Sine. By the way you too can pick up the template for free at Scrap Orchard. Just check the template challenge thread.

I think it turned out really cute, and you can use it for girls too!!!

Here are the other previews of the new kit found at Scrap Orchard:

There are 3 other previews. We couldn’t get everything to fit on just one preview. Go to the store and check them out. I will also post them in the next few days.

Also, DSO is finally up, and I wanted to give out another freebie for my June challenge kit there. I tried so hard to make just a mini, but ended up with a lot more than a mini, so I thought I’d add on to it at the end of the month, but the site went down. So here is my mini if you missed it. And after that preview is my add on.

My Dad

My Dad add on

Breast Stroke Meet:
Aidrin – pink ribbon (was dq, but then again, not sure who didn’t get dq in her age group)
Way to go Ad!!!
Camryn – 1st place individual (This girl is amazing. She didn’t come up out of the water, until she was half way across the pool. Breast stroke is probably her worst stroke, but makes it look so easy.
3rd place – relay team
Lauren – 2nd place individual and 2nd place relay team.

Great work girls!!!! Swim team is so fun.

Wow! I made it to the last round at Scrap Orchard’s SYTYCD.
I’ve been busy with this last challenge (the 4th and final round) and haven’t had any time to post. I’m stressing big time, but I just wanted to hurry and pop in here and put up my round 3 kit. The links at Scrap Orchard have now been taken down.

Here is a layout that Tiki sent to me, that she did with my Love in Paris kit. It’s so dang cute! Her little one is just so adorable. I really want to thank her for taking the time in sending me her layout. I really appreciate it. I also really appreciate all the awesome comments that all of you have been leaving on my blog and on my 4shared account.
Thanks to all of you!!

May DSO Color Challenge

Posted: May 23, 2008 in Freebie

Yeah! I finally finished this months color challenge at DSO. I have been working on this thing since the first of the month. I’ve like done and redone it a million times now. For some reason, I just couldn’t get it to come together, but I think that I like it now. I’m calling it watermelon. The only reason being, when I saw the color challenge colors that was the first thing that came to my mind. Eating a cold watermelon on a hot day. The kit has absolutely nothing to do with watermelon, other than the colors. Please any feedback on it would be wonderful. I’d also love to see any layouts that are done with this kit. My email is in my TOU.
